  3. I'm going to follow this one. I'm want to make a new one for my Bacchus. This one is temporary. It looks cool but on the black jazz, I want something more refined. I have a piece of red pearloid so right now, I'm leaning towards that :) It should look a lot like the tort one posted above, just a bit more bling :cool:

  9. I'm thinking about making the pickguard and control panel all one piece. A little break from tradition.:eyebrow:

    Fender did that in the late 80s (I think) to "cut prices", but I thought it looked killer. I've also seen a high-end J-Bass builder do it as well. It was on a white Jazz and it was a 1-piece pearloid. The only thing you have to be careful of is stepping on the cord.

    Definitely Silver/Black Paisley . . . but I have yet to see it on an actual instrument. Only cheap photoshop renders . . . :(

    This one came from a fellow TB'er. I think it might be my fav. Black jazz w/ abalone guard

    Black on black would be my favorite. With a maple fingerboard!

    I would go with something different than black on black... it's pretty overdone. I like to be more unique than just black. :)

    Fender32: what year is your P bass? My '79 looks exactly the same as yours.

    It's overdone for a reason (it looks awesome) :D
  16. i once saw a picture of a black jazz with a tort pickguard, but the image was so messed up it looked like a black pearl unless you looked close and saw the red. This makes me want to go with a black pearl when for my jazz (as the parts start arriving)

    I like tort on a 60s style jazz and black or white on a 70s jazz

    I love tort, so I almost always say tort.

    Other than that I have a black Strat that has a black pearl picguard and it is GORGEOUS.

    Black also looks nice, as you can see from the many pictures here.

    Geddy's looks great with a white pickguard (gotta love the maple fret board with blocks!!!)

    I think abalone would look great on a black bass.

    Oh, the choices ......
